Default Intel Optane SSDs

Very impressive performance from this new type of memory, though I'm not sure how much benefit it would provide to a typical user. I think when the persistent DIMM modules become mainstream, things could get much more interesting.

Overkill for pretty much any of us here. Great for large hosted SQL databases.

But if you have the money to spend… why not?

Bit of old news. The price point today kind of sucks and I think the evo is a better deal and meet most non-enterprise folks needs. The one area these seem quite nice is if you do a lot of small updates (databases) but again the update rate would have to be quite high to make these reasonable.
The product I'm waiting for are 8+TB ssd. They aren't on the market yet but should start appearing by the end of 2018. Hopefully by 2020 they will be under $0.10 a gig. Hard to tell how long it will take for solid price drop. I forget optane is intel exclusive or if there is a patent partner. THe problem with intel products is that usually (well ssd anyways) they remain expensive even when there is competing products (processors seem to be another story when there is good competition).

$600 for 500GB?

Sorry but those benchmarks aren't that impressive.
